Queueing Networks and Markov Chains: Modeling and Performance Evaluation with Computer Science Applications

Queueing Networks and Markov Chains: Modeling and Performance Evaluation with Computer Science Applications

Stefan Greiner, Hermann de Meer


severely acclaimed textual content for machine functionality analysis--now in its moment edition

the second one variation of this now-classic textual content offers a present and thorough therapy of queueing platforms, queueing networks, non-stop and discrete-time Markov chains, and simulation. completely up to date with new content material, in addition to new difficulties and labored examples, the textual content deals readers either the speculation and sensible information had to behavior functionality and reliability reviews of desktop, verbal exchange, and production systems.

beginning with uncomplicated chance conception, the textual content units the basis for the extra advanced subject matters of queueing networks and Markov chains, utilizing purposes and examples to demonstrate key issues. Designed to interact the reader and construct functional functionality research abilities, the textual content incorporates a wealth of difficulties that reflect genuine challenges.

New good points of the second one variation include:
* bankruptcy analyzing simulation equipment and applications
* functionality research functions for instant, web, J2EE, and Kanban systems
* most recent fabric on non-Markovian and fluid stochastic Petri nets, in addition to answer innovations for Markov regenerative processes
* up-to-date discussions of recent and well known functionality research instruments, together with ns-2 and OPNET
* New and present real-world examples, together with DiffServ routers within the web and mobile cellular networks

With the speedily growing to be complexity of computing device and verbal exchange structures, the necessity for this article, which expertly mixes conception and perform, is large. Graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars in computing device technology will locate the broad use of examples and difficulties to be important in gaining knowledge of either the fundamentals and the high quality issues of the sector, whereas pros will locate the textual content crucial for constructing structures that conform to criteria and rules.

Additionally, an answer handbook and an FTP web site with hyperlinks to author-provided facts for the ebook can be found for deeper study.
